House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Tuesday that it is not her plan to impeach Brett Kavanaugh if he is confirmed to the Supreme Court and Democrats win back the House this fall.
That would not be my plan, Pelosi said during an appearance at the Atlantic Festival in Washington, D.C. I have enough people on my back to impeach the president.
Its about unifying, she added. Let's hope, with the information that comes forward, and with the demonstration of temperament that is not judicial, that the Senate will do the right thing.
Pelosi struck a similar tone at the 2018 Texas Tribune Festival over the weekend, where she urged Democrats to take it "one step at a time" on Kavanaugh.
The California Democrat, who has also kept calls to impeach President Trump at an arms length, said Tuesday that Democrats would instead focus on conducting congressional oversight of the administration if they were in control of the House next year.
This is not a rubber stamp for any president, but its own independent, co-equal branch of government, Pelosi said.
Trump on Friday agreed to Senate GOP leaders' request for a "supplemental" FBI background check investigation into sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh, delaying his nomination to the Supreme Court for at least a week.
Kavanaugh and one of his accusers, Christine Blasey Ford, both testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week in an emotional, rollercoaster hearing during which Kavanaugh issued fiery rebukes of Democrats and forcefully denied the allegations against him.
Kavanaugh's nomination advanced to the Senate floor on Friday in a party-line vote, while several Republicans have indicated that they will not vote for his nomination until the FBI investigation is completed.
Pelosi's comments come as a number of Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee have indicated they would be open to investigating Ford's allegations against Kavanaugh should Democrats win a majority in the House in the November midterm elections.
Are Democrats changing tactic from sexual assault to temperament?
As if that ...uh...thing....has any plan other than lying and acting out the fact that she’s a complete sleaze.
Mebbe seeing polls out there?
She knows that if they win or lose in November she likely will be voted out by their nutjob base...............
And the charges and 'evidence' are thin.
Actually, Pelosi and most Dems would rather send people like Kavanaugh and other opponents to a Gulag.
Trust nothing from subversive liars. How many times will you fall for this “I’m not going to do anything”?
Yes. And theyre trying to pull a perjury trap regarding his college drinking.
Not the polls out there. Those are push-poll Fake News fluff. They have their own polls for internal use only, and theyre getting UGLY for the Demscum.
That said, we cannot be complacent. GET OUT THE VOTE for anyone who might help President Trump!
They know he is going to be approved.
Now they need to keep voters from realizing what they did for a couple months.
RATS have been told to shut up for now.
Someone is really scared and its NOT on the GOP side for a change.
She’s so full of it.....we’re not intended to be united with her and her gangsters. And I don’t want to see our Congress united operating as one......God is a God of distinctions..let it be so!
His reputation in court is ....?
impeachment is only an incitement, removal requires 2/3 of senate. Not a smart move for someone that has a job for life!
the Left is defining Passive-Aggressive on a daily basis
Maybe impeaching Kavanaugh is not part of “her” plan, but of course it will be proposed, and she will “reluctantly” agree to proceed with it.
Maxine Waters holds SO much more credibility with the rank and file of Democrats in the House than Nancy Pelosi ever could again.
Of course, this is all about temperament. But the yardstick of “temperament” is being applied to the wrong people.
By the wrong people.
Well then, whose plan is it, because its out there.
Its about unifying? What a crock of lying crap. Typical democrat.
